I am not quite sure if this is a coat or dress ornament, the needles on the back are a bit too substantial to put through dress material (in my mind); so I'm assuming it was for a ladies coat. If you wanted a shorter/smaller ornament you can remove the hanging portion by removing the butterfly clutches and slipping the loops off the pin needles on the back.
I cannot find any maker's mark on the back, but was hoping someone might have an idea of the approximate vintage of the piece and a possible maker. Measurements are: 4 5/16" x 2 1/8" .
